Kota Belud is a town located in the West Coast Division of Sabah. It is located roughly at the midpoint of the federal highway connecting  Kota Kinabalu and Kudat, near the northern tip of Sabah.  The town is considered the gateway to the heartland of the Bajau people.  It is also noted for its open air market (tamu) which is held every Sunday.  Once a year, the tamu is held on a much larger scale.  During this time, it is known as the Tamu Besar or Grand Market.  The parish has four zones: Kelawat, Tambulion, Pekan and Purak Ogis.  The present church was blessed by Bishop John Lee on 18 Nov 1989.  It is under the patronage of St Edmund the Martyr.
